Trip Review

Lifetime experience in top of the world Traveler: David watson || Country: Australia

A-oneHimalaya gave us a competitive package and excellent service right from the first contact over email. Dhan raj karki, who runs the company is very punctual, proficient, welcoming and has an excellent team. His expertise and guidance on the EBC trek supported us to finalize this grand trek in a remarkably short time.

The guide Indra, porters and all the combinations throughout our trek were great. Mr. Indra was very humble and experienced in the field of high altitude. He made sure we are happy and comfortable. The hotels and lodges arranged by A-one Himalaya throughout the whole trek (Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Lukla) were really comfortable, well placed, neat and tidy with the delicacy of meals and service.

I would highly recommend A-One Himalaya for trekking in Nepal.”really amazing company with excellent services”
